Understanding college health insurance can be difficult, especially considering the student with a broken arm or concussion knows that they are literally and figuratively safer without their insurance coverage. This blog piece will break down the vital aspects of what students should know about the healthcare waiver in order to make sure they are covered while they are away from home.
What is a health insurance waiver?
A health insurance waiver is a document requested by many students when they apply for school health insurance. It allows the student to have their insurance catastrophic coverage (also known as “occurrence-based” or “comprehensive” coverage) waived in order to reduce the cost of their policy. The policyholder must also meet certain eligibility requirements, such as having continuous enrollment at the university, maintaining a grade point average of 2.0 or higher, and not having any prior serious health conditions. Health insurance waivers are available at many universities, and should be a top priority for students who are looking to save money on their school health insurance policy. If you are eligible and want to take advantage of a health insurance waiver at MU, be sure to speak with your Financial Aid Office about your options.
